But when Lissandra finds him, he refuses to return home or believe that he is the next oracle. Murdoch cannot control his unusual gifts, nor can he control the heated sensuality that still flows between them after many years apart. Lissandra can heal his wounds, but can she heal his spirit and make him accept what is ordained by the gods? Their hearts, bodies, minds, souls and love are one. By sharing their psychic powers, will they be able to save the people and their beloved Mystic Isle of Aelynn? (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Jul., 384 pp., $7.99)
